Maidstone Light Walk

  • Project Type: Public
  • Client: Maidstone Borough Council
  • Status: Design
  • Location: Maidstone

The proposal looks to upgrade the riverbank in central Maidstone.

The existing riverbank has a hard concrete ede with upstand that regularly floods, shutting down the public footpath. Our proposal looks to soften the bank creating better a better habitat for wildlife, allowing nature to take hold of the space once again. A boardwalk style pathway will be raised up to avoid flooding.

The planted riverbank will help slow the flow of floodwater reducing the likelihood of flash flooding. Kinetic lights will run the length of the river front, projecting light onto the walkway from the handrail. The light walk will encourage the public to use the river walkway creating a safer route maximising views of the Archbishops Palace and All Saints Church.
